out of curiosity, i looked to see which was the song with the highest play count on my i-tunes. and i was not at all surprised when devendra banhart’s ‘baby’ topped out at 104. (the troggs followed closely behind with 94). i tend to listen to this song on repeat while getting ready, its positivity is completely infectious. i love devendra–his lyrics are ridiculous. his videos are ridiculous. but when it comes down to it, he is a genius musician. this song epitomizes happiness and infatuation with its upbeat ditty and crazy-for-you lyrics.
please, try to not smile when you listen to this.
